FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do we charge for our 3D printing?


The main driver for price is weight. Weight is based on the amount of material that the part has and as a result the amount of time the machine will take to turn the powder into solid.




What is the maximum size part you can print?


Stainless (316 and 15-5) it is 245 x 245 x 280mm Inconel it is 245 x 245 x 335mm Titanium it is 275 x 275 x 345mm (all sizes are X x Y x Z)




Will my part be 3D printed with other parts and how does this affect the pricing and lead time?


We aim to fill a plate with a mixture of client parts and base our pricing on achieving this. The only time we charge more for 3D printing a part is when it is needed in a shorter timeframe. The extra charge is often for weekend staff time. Our normal lead time is 3 weeks.




What file format is best?


We work the following file formats; iges, STEP, Parasolid etc and native Solidworks files. The software we use to do our lattice work requires an STL file, so a good quality STL file works well.




Can any part be selectively laser melted?


Generally yes, although success in SLM depends a lot on the shape of the part. Parts that have intricate details which are difficult to machine or contain areas of curves and complex surfaces, lend themselves well to SLM manufacturing.




What are the design restrictions?


3D manufacturing enables design freedom. This allows designers and engineers to follow where their imagination takes them. The printing process simply follows this design freedom, easily and cost-effectively producing complex, high spec pieces that traditional manufacturing processes could simply not produce.




Quality Control


Quality control is an important part of the design and manufacturing process, with finished pieces needing to be consistently reliable. We run tensile bars and test every build. This enables us to ensure the build process meets specification but also tracks general production processes over a long period of time.
